In line with its commitment to deliver top-notch recruitment service by supplying an efficient Filipino workforce to the global market, Subnet RTA has successfully deployed 24 staff nurses to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is still looking for more. These Filipino nurses will be assigned in the intensive care unit, dialysis, pediatric, and long term care facilities of the International Extended Care (IEC) Hospital.
Today, Filipinos and other workers around the world are celebrating Labor Day. As a tribute to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and the Filipino workingmen in general, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will hold a groundbreaking ceremony in San Fernando, Pampanga for the first ever OFW hospital.
2018 is now a has-been. Celebrations are over. Holiday vacations have come to an end. Most working people are going back to work or have gone back to work already. Students will soon be back to school and finish another school year. In what seems to be a brief moment, we all conquered 2018 and are now facing a brand new year.
The main reason why one becomes an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is to provide a better life for his/her family. This translates to sacrificing the freedom that living in the Philippines entails, which includes spending time with loved ones for as long as a Filipino desires to. This also means having to endure endless lonely nights and going home every day to a place that he/she would never consider a permanent home. Ultimately, the saddest truth that haunts an OFW is not being able to celebrate important occasions with the family, specifically Christmas and New Year.
Christmas for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) is definitely a blue Christmas especially if they cannot go home for a holiday vacation. Imagine being alone in a foreign land while your loved ones in the Philippines have a lot of family reunion memories to share? Can you even picture coming home to an empty apartment on Christmas Eve where your only resort to happiness is your laptop that has an Internet connection?
